Tuesday Teaser-palooza 100813


Oh, no! Not another two-fer Tuesday Teaser!  (last one, we promise.)

Can you ID these two birds just from their tail feathers?

The above bird was photographed late last month at the NJMC’s banding station, thanks to the NJMC’s Mike Newhouse and his awesome band of bird banders. The bird below was photographed last week, same place, same great folks.

To give you an added incentive, we are offering a prize to the person who correctly identifies the most Tuesday Teasers in October and November. (In the case of a tie, the winner’s name will be drawn from a cap.)

The prize? Rick Wright of WINGS Birding Tours is graciously donating a copy of “The Warbler Guide” by Tom Stephenson and Scott Whittle. (Thanks, Rick!)

There will be nine total birds, some easy, some tough. Please e-mail your bird-ID to Jim Wright each Tuesday by midnight (just click” e-mail us” in the right-hand column of this blog). IDs received after midnight will not be counted. Also, the “comments” section of the Teaser will be closed so no one can post their answer.  (Just trying to be fair.)
